Japan caused international complications and made herself appear extremely extreme extreme- extreme I ly silly in the eyes of the rest of of the world Her latest outbreak of ot of war hysteria was the detention of oft I the passengers and crew of an- an an A- th ship which had run a- I a- a- a I a-I I ground inTokyo Bay Destroyers I stood by the ship not to take off i persons in danger but to prevent I sketching and photographing of the fortified area while Japanese guards boarded the ship for the same purpose Only a day or two 1 before the Japanese arrested the crews o- I of four Russian whaling ships that tha had put into a fortified port fo for water In 1931 two American flyers flyers flyers fly flyers Herndon and were detained several weeks and pu put put- I through an absurd grilling because they they had unwittingly flown over fortified areas The idiotic examiners examiners exam examiners even tried to make an issue of the fact fac that one of the flyers had a young brother attending a military school The Pathfinder travel editor was once arrested in in- the in- the in- thethe Interior of Japan and forced to leave All countries take precautions against espionage but all substantial substantial sub sub- facts regarding a rivals rival's fortifications and plans are known to any other nation which feels it worth while to do a bit of spying Information ig is not gained however however however how however by sending flyers ar aroundund the world even crossing two oceans so that a photograph may be tak tal- en It would be much easier to buy a secret Japanese photo or map from a clerk whose wifewile needs a new obi Again our Intelligence depart department depart- mentment menu is not so hard up for Information information information inform inform- regarding the fortifications around Tokyo that it must run aground an expensive ship so that photos may be taltaken en and drawings drawings drawings draw drawings made Are the forts so obvious obvious obvious ob ob- that they may be sketched from theharbor Those who were old enoughin 1917 18 will recognize the toms Theseidiotic espionage charges are just part of a war hysteria and are enlightening in that they show that the Japanese people are in the frame ofmind which would permit their leaders to make war not only on China but on Russia America or any other nation America passed through the same period of hysterical i ity ty while we were at war If a a- man a- man a- manman named Schmidt should board a train at Baltimore to attend the races at Laurel he was dragged dragged drag dragged ed from the train becausehe was carrying field glasses with which he would spy out thethc secrets of Washington The fact that helie had been carrying glasses to the races for years years only showed his guile In building up for this opportunity op opportunity for tor perfidiousness If a small boy forgetting himself himself himself him himself for a moment should order a hamburger sandwich It was not unlikely that his whole family would be persecuted as German sympathizers even though though the boys boy's two older brothers should beat be beat be- atat the Ule front Everyone

He was promptly arrested for Cor signaling to a German submarine sub submarine When he pointed out that that- aa submarine couldn't get close enough to hishouse by several hundred miles to see the light the citizens went into a conference and emerged with the idea that it I must have been a Zeppelin and burned his barn as a warning Absolutely silly wasn't It Well VeIl I the Japanese are going through I just such a time now Its It's all very I I exciting while it lasts but it I makes makesmaltes you ou feel sheepish when the scare is over The The Pathfinder I Magazine I The New cv Era I In economic theory there are three factors in the production of wealth viz land labor capitol Man in his early savage state was was- I entirely dependent upon land and I labor His life was sustained by consuming from day to day whatever whatever whatever what whatever was Vas natively produced upon the land He saved nothing for forr future need until taught by tempestuous tem tem- tempestuous experience the advantage advantage advantage advant advant- tem tem-I age of garnering the produce of summer for consumption in wint winter The grains and the berries and the meats andskins of wold animals were his earliest probable accumulationof capital His lif life life was then no longer imperiled by by- the by- the by- the And the barren fieldsof winter he was no longer compelled to occupy occupy occupy oc occupy his whole time in search of food He turned to his larder to satisfy his hunger Life became I easier Moved instinctively in an I attempt to satisfy his inherent curiosity he exploited new fields which afforded new stimuli for new wan wants sand provoked new attempts at at- temptstempts to satiate them This continuous continuous continuous con con- I exploitation of the field of the unknown has directly led to the creation of our great variety of weal wealth tho Family tribal pastoral and communal organized social orders were successively invoked to gain the mutual advantage of every membersmember's individual genius Inthe In Inthe In- thethe communal state each person became a specialist pursuing a particular task Each became an efficient producer and soon discovered discovered discov- eredered that in his field he could produce produce pro produce a surplus beyond individual need These surpluses were exchanged ex exchanged exchanged ex exchanged directly and thus each member received the benefit of his neighbors neighbor's skill and its it's resultant creations Barter was the earliest form of exchange It had many inconveniences It was cumbersome cumbersome cumbersome cumber cumbersome and limited the exchange of commodities to a very small terri territory The inherent desire of man man- to man- to man- toto obtain the products of remote communities provoked the use use- of some commodity that would be generally accepted relatively scarce hence something of small volume that could be traded for- an for for- an for- anan immense amount of other goods Oxen wampum silver and gold are among the most important commodities successively used The political sovereign in an at attempt attempt at- tempttempt to banish fraud and confusion confusion confus- ionion from his realm provided provide by bylaw bylaw by- lawlaw that a piece of silver or gold of certain weight and fineness should be a standard by which the value of all other goods and se services services vices v- ices should be measured Thus the precious metals which became automatically became a medium of exchange were coined at fixed weight and fineness as standard measures of the value ofall other I commodities A momentous blunder blUn- der blunder blun blUn- der was then We have inherited that blunder It has provided provided provided pro provided a haven for greed and power pow power er It has permitted the shrewd speculator to exploit the innocent toiler and investor It is a cardinal cardinal cardinal cardi cardinal cause of these baneful depres It is the direct cause of ot what Professor Irving Fisher calls the money Illusion The grave fallacy of minting coins at a fixed metallic content is thatthe supply and demand of gold does not always vary directly direct directly with the supply and demand for other commodities and vitiates them as a measuring device Thus during a period when confidence In profitable Investments wanes loans are not renewed credit In Instruments instruments instruments in- in which circulate as money under our financial system diminishes in volume and bank deposits deposits deposits de de- deI posits shrink and demand for gold cash and currency is greater than its supply The gold dollar I Increases in value It purchasing I II I power Is then greatly increased I II resulting In a general lowering of th the price level This Is exactly I what occurred during the panic of 1893 to 1896 To alleviate the I I strain placed upon pen gold and thus I lessen the purchasing power of the dollar William Jennings Bryan Bry- Bry I an campaigned for free and unlimited unlimited un unlimited coinage of silver as a means of restoring this country I to prosperity Mr Bryan as a a- II presidential candidate was defeated defeat defeated but good fortune camecarne to the Republican an victors not so much from policy pursued as by acci accident Great neat reat deposits of gold were I discovered shortly after the election election elec election of McKinley in the Rand district dis dis- district in South Africa in Australia Austra- lI Austral- Austral iala in Alaska a and the Klondike I This gre great increase in the supply of gold cheapened goldgola everywhere including that coined into dollars There was an immediate decrease I in the purchasing power of the dollar and a corresponding rise in commodity prices a prices a return of I confidenceand an expansion of credit which led to a new era of prosperity The most vital question before the world and particularly before I I America at present is whether or not we are going to trust to fortune fortune fortune for fortune again or utilize a means which is immediately available I There are three expedients which I are proposed to restore us to prosperity prosperity prosperity pros pros- Namely Expansion of the currency by fiat of ot silver and expansion of credit OTHERS VIEW VIES MOMENTOUS QUESTION Heres Here's a question that
